    My 8 year old twins are starting to get really decent at footy now. Ive taken them to 2 Sunderland games and constantly take them out on the field to play but theyve literally had no interest up until now.

    Its a shame because my first Safc game will stay in my mind forever. 1987 1-1 against Wallsall in Div 3. We had over 10k fans at Roker and i always remember the feeling i had getting to that top step inside the stadium and seeing the illuminous Green pitch with all the fans. I was about the same age as my lads are now and ive been hooked from that day on.. Screenshot_20210228-164129_Gallery.jpg

    We had nowhere near 40k in Roker that season mind. Biggest crowd was less than 30k against Northampton. We couldn't fit 40k in Roker by then

    I cant believe youve actually Googled that.
    This thread was about my lads, i couldn't really give a feck about the attendance, the image in my mind as a kid was a full house.

    Nice photo Tees! When things are back to normal I'm sure you'll be able to take them to some amazing games and they'll love it. I took my daughter to her first SAFC game just before the pandemic struck. Its a losing battle though as the Mrs took her to West Ham game just before that and she now tells me she's hammer. I think she just does it to wind me up though!
    Your lads will have great memories of SAFC- they'll be able to start going regularly just when we're on the up again!

    I dont even mind being corrected but dont be a kunt about it.
    I put the attendance down based off being a kid and seeing a full stadium. The thread wasnt even about that.
    The fact that you have completely overlooked what it was about and jumped on the fact i got the attendance completely wrong goes to show what a saddo you are.
    Ive put a pic on of my boys and youve shot me down after. That is a personal insult to me and so wrong.

    I don't always say anything but it always makes me smile when you post about your lads. You and I have had some similar experiences so I think I know where you're coming from <ok>

    Thanks mate, you're one of the decent lads on here.
    Yes i think we do have similar experiences. My lads are my world and to have a thread about them spoilt makes me angry

    Can we just say great to see the two lads about to follow in their dad’s footsteps, into a life of expectation, hope and ultimately despair.
